ZJ Liquid's fate hangs in the balance - Still no confirmations from ZIP

Despite rumours that ZJ Liquid has been fired from ZIP FM, officials for the radio station have been tight lipped on the matter.

When THE STAR contacted Chad Young of IRIE FM, parent company of ZIP FM, Young could not give any confirmation as to whether Liquid was still with the station. A few weeks ago, the ZJ, real name Michael Brissett, got in trouble once again after an incident that took place during his Wednesday 'Fresh 2 Death' segment.

The ZIP FM disc jock played an unedited version of Andrew and Wada Blood's new song BeggyBeggy in which an expletive was aired. The ZJ immediately covered up the blunder by switching to another song but not before it was noticed by a number of listeners.

Playing an expletive on air is in direct violation of the Broadcasting Commission's rules and regulations. Since the incident, the radio station has been playing apologies, not naming which programme it happened on.

Since the incident took place, the ZJ has not resumed his regular set on air. This was Liquid's second blunder since the start of the year. In February, Liquid was suspended indefinitely for playing an unedited version of Aidonia's Love It on his show. The ZJ returned to air a month later.

During his absence from radio, a 'Put ZJ Liquid back on air' group was formed on social networking site to protest his absence. Since its start in February the page has gained over 7,000 fans. One fan commented since week, "seriously ZJ Liquid, nah lie, dem need fi free up di thing and put you back on air, NY massive nah do well without you ... keep your head up and hold the faith. We a wait on your return."

Liquid released his first official music video for the song Party Haad last week.
